Pointcloud Import

Not applicable
Hey, everybody. I have the following problem: When I import a pointcloud it appears only in the 3d workspace. It is not visible on the Ground floor workspace. I have the feeling it is a problem with scaling. The pointcloud is georeferenced and built in Agisoft Photoscan.
Any ideas or suggestions? Did anyone encountered a similar problem?

In my experience in most cases, this happens because the Point Cloud is out of the vertical range of the Story.
I would create a Section that cuts through the Point Cloud and check exactly where it is located vertically. Maybe it is much higher or lower than the Story's vertical range. So bring it into the vertical range of your Story.
The Floor Plan Cut Plane settings may also influence whether/how much the Point Cloud is visible in the Floor Plan. You can check that as well.
